There is a reason



why I love Italy the way I do.


It's the water



Of the many lakes of Northern Italy, at the foot of the Alps. 



Villa Carlotta
So plain on the outside but wait until you are allowed to go inside. 



The top floor of Villa Carlotta is still occupied.  Her flag is flying when the Marquese is in residence.  
The flag was flying the day we visited.  




Fine silks in Bellagio, the pearl of the region.
I seldom succumb, but this time I came home with three beautiful, hand painted silk scarfs.




To see Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper was a privilege.



Next time I will not climb all the way to the top of the world's 3rd largest Duomo in Milan.
It is dizzying.



When in Milano one must visit Da Vinci, La Scala and the famous shopping mall and maybe the awe inspiring Duomo. 


What I loved most of all were the waters of the many lakes.  They were pure and clean.  Every Body of water was crystal clear. Not a piece of paper, not a spot of oil on the water, no refuse of any kind.  

I hope that one day you have an opportunity to visit this spectacular region of Italy.

  1. Bonjour,

    Un très joli panache de photos qui donnent très envie de visiter tous ces lieux... Je connais un peu Milan. J'aime beaucoup cette ville.
    Le lac, n'est-il pas le lac de Come ?

    Gros bisous 🌸

    1. Bonjour Martinealison,
      Yes those pictures are of Lake Como, only one of the many beautiful lakes you will find when visiting this gorgeous part of the world. Thank you for stopping by.

  2. I so pleased you had a wonderful inspiring visit. The Lakes are each beautiful but I think I loved Iseo the best and the beautiful mountains that surround with the local train that takes you right up to the places where the ancient rock carvings are.
